Every second woman in Georgia has experienced at least one form of violence during her life, and every fourth woman has experienced sexual harassment. The National Study on Violence against Women, which was presented by UN Women and the National Statistics Office of Georgia (Geostat) with the support of the European Union, studied the extent of the spread of psychological, physical, sexual and economic forms of violence, as well as the incidents of sexual harassment, stalking and violence experienced in childhood.
Join UN Women’s Generation Equality campaign to accelerate gender equality actions and mark the 25th anniversary of the Beijing Declaration and Platform for Action, the most visionary agenda for women’s rights and empowerment everywhere. The campaign demands equal pay, equal sharing of unpaid care and domestic work, an end to all forms of violence against women and girls, women’s leadership and access to health.
Globally, one in three women experiences physical or sexual violence, mostly by an intimate partner. While domestic violence and abuse are sometimes hidden, if we know the signs of an abusive relationship, we may be able to recognize it better and seek or offer help.
A video was created entirely based on real stories. People who participated in the video were reading real stories that happened to women victims/survivors of sexual violence throughout Georgia, the stories that UN Women searched for specifically for the campaign.
